Beech House Choir Sings at Harvest Tea at the Riley

Wednesday, 12 October 2016

The Sixth Form Girls will once again host Tea at the Riley this year. This intergenerational tea party has in recent years invited older people in the local area into the Riley Sixth Form Centre for a special afternoon tea, hand-made and served by the Sixth Formers, with the promise of good conversation and entertainment as well as delicious food and drinks.

Tea at the Riley has gone from strength to strength since its inception, and many guests are now regulars at the monthly events.

October’s Tea at the Riley had a harvest theme, and in addition to the usual finger sandwiches and cake selection there was a special treat for the guests. Children in the choir at Beech House, Bolton School’s Infant School, visited the Riley Centre to perform Harvest songs that they had learned for their own Harvest assembly earlier in the week.

The children sang two songs with actions, to the delight of Tea at the Riley guests, and afterwards were treated to fairy cakes and drinks of their own before returning to Beech House.

Tea at the Riley continued with more cakes and chatter as the new crop of Sixth Form volunteers served their guests the rest of their afternoon tea.
